Dear Readers & Authors,
Thanks to UKWriter graciously accepting my invitation to join the site we now have One Hundred Authors. He is in the process of posting his first story here, it will be available soon.
I had planned to ask him to join the site several years ago, however, I lost track of him when I was on my years-long hiatus, thankfully I have rectified that error.
So check out his stories, you might just find another new favourite author,
Hey guys & girls, I just dropping another note to let everyone know that Chasing Christmas is available for purchase over on Kindle. For more information check out my website www.dk-daniels.com
Secondly, I want to wish everyone an early Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, as this is the most hectic time of the year for me, as I assume it is for many. This January coming will mark my 2nd anniversary since I set out to pursue writing with serious intent. I want to thank all the folks who have spent hours reading each written word, through the mistakes and all the tiring waits. If it weren't for you guys, I wouldn't have anything worth saying without an audience. :)
Continuing the farewell to Elijah's mother, Fantasy Faire 7 is ready for you to read. There are some highs and lows to this chapter so the emotional roller coaster ride has not come to an end quite yet. You have been warned.
Every week I will randomly pick one of the site's authors as the Author of the Week. I am hoping that this will bring different authors to the attention of the site's readers.
So check out his stories, you might just find another new favourite author.
We have completed the upgrade and after sorting out a couple of bugs it appears that the sites are all working. If we missed anything, please let us know! We are aware of issues on ShackNation, and are actively working on repairs (It doesn't like the newer OS for some reason)
If you do spot something major, please notify TSL so that he can take credit for breaking something again... he's behind on his quota for the month.
Thanks for your patience!
Hi all. I have posted a list with the order to read the basic Haven stories. There will be more to come.
The server move has been completed and the DNS propagation seems to have been completed as well. The issue with the Newest Chapters on the Fort Family Community Site has been resolved as well.
Story posting may resume, or shall I say has resumed.
Somehow during the posting of Ruwen Rouhs German Story Madz ~ Schulzeit ~ (German) I inadvertently missed posting Kapitel 2 and Kapitel 15, those chapters have now been posted. I apologize for the error. Thanks to a wonderful and concerned reader C. for bringing the error to my attention so that it could be fixed.
I also want to thank Jeff P. for supplying the awesome image for my story Christmas On The Mountain. Don't forget to submit your Christmas Short Stories to Fred De Elf for the Christmas Short Story Event. He tells me that he has some very good ones for this year's event.
Happy Reading & Writing,
Right now we are waiting for the DNS Servers to catch up with all of the work. At this time, sometimes you will hit the old setup, and sometimes the new one. Within the next 24 hours it will stabilize, then everything will be back to normal! Good news is that this new setup is even faster than the old one - I'm sure that you will appriciate it!
Thank you for your patience, and we're all looking forward to the performance boost this new equipment gives us!
